Robert Kubica has reportedly undergone yet more surgery on his right leg after injuring it in a fall last week.
The former Renault driver is believed to have slipped on ice, breaking his right leg which had been seriously injured in his rally accident last February.
The Pole, though, is on the road to recovery.
According to reports in his native Poland, Kubica was operated on in Italy over the weekend to repair the fracture to his right tibia.
He is expected to remain in hospital for a few days.
